DINZ Announcement

December 11, 2007

It's back! After six years! The DINZ BeST Design Awards are once again being commemorated as a stand alone annual publication, which celebrates the achievements of our very BeST designers.

For professional designers, the re-launch of our annual publication means a chance to see and read about all the award-winning projects and design-driven business successes that can both inform and inspire. The Institute's 2007 BeST Design Awards program attracted over 600 entries with over 580 people attending the awards night in October. All of the Awards Winners and entrants will be recorded in the full colour pages of the 2007 DINZ BeST Awards Annual.

For advertisers, the BeST Design Awards Annual offers a powerful, prestigious medium to reach a uniquely well-targeted audience becoming a permanent feature for: professional designers from spatial, graphics, product, craft/object, design management, design education, fashion, lighting and interactive media, educators of design and their students.

The readership for the BeST Design Awards Annual will be much larger, direct-mail distribution to Institute members, key decision makers in selected organisations that engage professional design services, associations and studios. To further the readership of the 2007 BeST Design Awards Annual an eBook will be produced providing easy access to anyone who wishes to view the outstanding achievements of this year's winners and sponsors of the annual.

The eBook will be hosted on the DINZ homepage and distributed to a database of over 3000 with an audience of Institute members, key decision makers in professional design services, associations and studios around the world; bringing an international marketplace to the very BeST designers we have to offer.

The Institute has appointed specialist publishers Crowther-Blayne & Associates to produce the BeST Design Awards Annual and to offer advertising space.

Their representative will be in touch with you soon to tell you more about how you can benefit from being part of the Institute's on-going celebration of what great design can achieve or alternatively email
